Participation is open to men or women aged 15 and over. For some themes (e.g., semi-nude) participants must be 18 and over.
Details: Seeking individuals willing to be photographed for this ongoing art project in 2017.
The aim of the photo shoot is to produce a series of photographic images which embody a tasteful representation of the human form as visual art. You may be partially clothed, photographed as a concealed nude or asked to model a conceptual fashion design. As a model you will be guided through the entire process and you are not expected to have any knowledge of posing or any previous modelling experience. You may be asked to bring a selection of random items to be worn or photographed with. These may include minimal clothing items as partial body coverings. The entire photo shoot may take up to and over three hours to complete. During the course of the following week approximately 10 images will be selected, edited and presented to you in digital form for remote download. Participation is by selection i.e., people can request to participate by emailing me from the "contact page". I choose participants on the basis of enthusiasm, open mindedness and I may request a full length photograph. Be aware that even tho participation is selective I am not seeking stereotypical "good looks". Anyone regardless of gender or body shape can participate if I feel I'd like to collaborate with you. In some cases the participants of this project have been people I've met and I've asked if I could photograph them. In other cases they are long term followers of my Facebook page, friend of a friend, a neighbor, even a local barista has been photographed. In all cases I'm seeking inclusion and diversity of appearance, gender, culture & sexuality and an open minded appreciation of this work as a figurative art project.
Pricing: As this is a personal art project I do not have set fees or charges. I do however expect participants to make a contribution to the production costs. A contribution of $60 to $100 is adequate depending upon your financial means.
Location: My studio is in Lithgow NSW which is 150km west of central Sydney. It is two hours driving time or three hours by train from Sydney.
